EQA Podcast Ep 11 Scotland

Equestrian Adventuresses Horse and Travel Podcast - For Women who love Horses, Travel and Adventure

Karen went on an amazing adventure with her deaf dog and her troublesome horse across 13 islands completely unsupported. She shares how her crazy rescue horse was downright dangerous and it was actually suggested by a vet to have her put down. When Karen came up with the idea at this last attempt to win her horse over. We talk about her book “The Deaf, The Daft and The Ditsy” and how Karen raised 6,500 GBP for charity all thanks to her story about traveling with her horse.

Special Announcement

The Equestrian Adventuresses Fund

We are happy to announce that this month we have raised, thanks to our listeners 50 USD to put towards our EQA fund, where our mission is to get women in the saddle. Unfortunately, in many countries horse riding is still seen as a male-dominated sport. So with this month’s money, we are asking our listeners to send us their nominations for women and girls who could use the money for riding lessons or educational horse books or anything just like this. So please, if you know someone you want to nominate or if you want to contribute to next month’s fundraiser, please check out our Patreon page and find out how you can support EQA and get more women around the world in the saddle.

Also anytime you shop on our EQA website, for example our equestrian woman bracelet or our online video courses, a percentage of the profits automatically go to the EQA fund. So don’t worry, you can shop along absolutely guilt-free.


  • Book: “The Deaf, the Daft and the Ditsy”
    Karen’s book is self published and available for purchase via the linked Facebook Page. Proceeds go to charity.
